Assurance

Assurance

When Danny was suddenly ill the first thing I thought was how could I live without him? That thought wasn’t about the money. It was about his presence. Forty four years of relationship was so quickly reduced to a pivotal moment. Sure he’s got life insurance. But I want him! As he has been recovering it’s been quite miraculous. And yet I cling to every moment as it has become even dearer to me. Snoring is even comforting. I may have a little problem even being away from him. He’s independent though so he will help me with that! Lol …

Rest

Rest

What if rehab was just a place to rest? What if nothing were done to help the patient heal or regain their strength? It would be a nice place but would that be helpful? Danny needed lots of rest and still does. But it’s the combination of things that is bringing about real change and total healing. Oh beloved God hears your cry for rest. He has seen your plight and He knows your heart. He also knows that you are in a battle for your very life. The enemy has pulled out all his plans and has executed them …

Help

Help

In the last couple of months I’ve had to make quite a few phone calls. Lots of time has been spent listening to prompts to press a series of numbers to get to the right department. It’s quite a complicated effort to ever get to a living breathing voice. Even quite a few local offices now have these answering services. And frankly I just want to talk to a real person. Oh beloved life and phone systems can sure get complicated. One thing you can know – talking to the Lord requires no wait. You’ve been frustrated by things that …

Obedience

Obedience

It’s time for our yard to be mowed. We have about an acre of lawn and it grows fast. Yesterday evening my husband asked me to try mowing it. I needed to learn. I just don’t much like riding mowers. But okay I said and he sat in chair while I made a valiant effort. It was awkward. I don’t like hills and turns. So I tried to avoid both. I managed to mow some areas and held my breath as it felt at time like I was going to fall over! But my desire to please him outweighed my …

Healing

Healing

 My hubby had a stroke in May. When that stroke occurred we were in the midst of a misdiagnosis. They didn’t get it right. Twice. It was only because of the Holy Spirit speaking to a physician after my husband’s arrival in Little Rock that the real problem was discovered. I’ll ever be thankful for a woman up early for her quiet time who heard the Lord speak to her heart: “Go see that man in person.” She responded and came to see him in person and discovered that this could not possibly be a simple back issue. Now we …

Thankfulness

Thankfulness

Faith always says thank you before God’s provision Danny blessing our meals is especially wonderful! He couldn’t for a while. In the beginning his words were mere whispers and his thoughts were jumbled. We thanked the Lord for meals anyway. As healing progressed his words came more naturally. Yes blessing the meal is especially wonderful to me now. Oh beloved. Your words may seem jumbled to you. You may not know in the natural if it’s worth it. After all you know what it looks like and you know how it feels. But faith says thank you even before God’s …

The Healthy Life

The Healthy Life

This is a commercial and a story. LOL Danny and I have both now received our medical results from Boston Heart Hospital’s wellness program. Best test results ever! Easy to understand and incredibly informative. Commercial aside, we both will be taking a few supplements that will increase our health, strength and hopefully longevity. Not just any supplements, but because our physician knows the best supplements we will be taking ones without fillers. She told us that a study was done on supplements from five different sources (stores) and found they had very little to none of the actual vitamins and …

No Limits!

No Limits!

We have had the same internet and cable plan in our home for years. Not until the company decided to upgrade have we had any problems. First our favorite channels were gone and so we decided to drop the cable part. Why pay so much for so little? Each month since we have also exceeded our data limits even though we never had done that before. Same plan now exceeding limits. One has to wonder just what is going on. Regardless we now have to be careful or we have to pay more for more data. Oh beloved, God is …

Yes You Are Precious!

Yes You Are Precious!

My mother, like most women, had a few pieces of delicate glassware that sat in a safe place. One such set was a demitasse coffee urn and cups. I remember it well because I was in charge of picking that set out as a gift from my mother’s friend. I had gone with this friend to Dallas one summer to go to the theater and other things. She wanted to give my mom this gift and asked me which set. As God brings this to mind this morning I remember there were several sets in that shop and some were …

Truly Valuable

Truly Valuable

When we watch Antiques Roadshow we almost hold our breath. There’s this feeling that one of these days an item our parents had owned will show up and be worth much money. We laugh whenever we get to watch it, which is rare, but still we enjoy it. It’s amazing how some people come in with an item that looks like nothing. But after it’s appraised – it is truly a collectible of great worth! You hear phrases like “bought at a yard sale for a dollar” or “found it in parents attic”. The amazing thing about how God places …

Those Gifts!

Those Gifts!

Every gift our 6 year old granddaughter received was her favorite! As each package was opened she remarked that she adored it, it was wonderful, it was something she always wanted. Once she opened it and said “I love it!” And then she said “What is it?” We all laughed. She lit up the room with her praise and thankfulness. She did receive things she had asked for, but other gifts were things she hadn’t thought about. Nevertheless she loved them all. Everything that came to her was unwrapped and enjoyed. Her joyfulness was contagious and sincere. Let’s face it. …

Rounding the Bases of Life

Rounding the Bases of Life

Our 7 year old grandson made a home run last night. It was a stop and go sort of run. He made it to first base and the other team overthrew the ball so his coach urged him to keep going. Then he rounded second and headed for third. He almost got tagged by a player and ran back towards second. Again the reprieve of an overthrown ball and he went on to third after all. Finally, the coach and the parents too urged him to run on home. He was elated! We all hollered his name out loud as …
